How did you delete it?

This seems to be a cPanel issue. Please see

cPanel typically uses Exim which uses 'routers'.

If you have access to the file sistem, look in the directory
/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/lists/. If there is a d4_gaafg.org
(or is it dist4_gaafg.org) sub-directory, remove it.
